Whether you’re camping, going to deer camp or just want a reliable backup in case of a power outage, a portable power unit is a great thing to have on hand. It also makes an outstanding gift. The folks at Jackery have really hit the ground running with what may well be the best portable power supply units you’ll find anywhere. These versatile units can be charged at home, in the truck, or via an optional solar panel charging kit. I bought a Jackery because I live in a remote area and when the power goes down, it can take days to be repaired. I also like to camp in places that don’t have anything close to a hookup, so having a portable, yet safe and quiet power supply was a must have. All Jackery models have a built-in power management system that helps the unit run efficiently and safely, another good reason to buy this brand. Jackery has a lot of options, so picking the right one for you, or that special someone you are buying for, is pretty easy.

At 2,160 Wh capacity, 2,200W AC power and 4,400W peak power, the Solar Generator 2000 Pro has enough juice to power just about anything. It can run most appliances and tools for outdoor activities and home emergency use. This includes things like your refrigerator, your air conditioner, the smoker and more. For deer camp, you can recharge the ebike, run the lights for the poker game or power up the TV and satellite dish in case you have a football game to watch. It comes with two SolarSaga 200W solar panels to recharge and can handle up to 6 total. With 6 panels, the unit recharges in just under 2.5 hours! Plug it into an outlet and it takes around 2 hours. This unit is meant to recharge faster than any other portable power supply of its size. At its core is a premium Lithium-Ion battery that handles countless recharges. It is easy to operate with one button and a digital display that lets you know exactly how much battery life remains.
Jackery Solar Generator 1000 (Explorer 1000 + SolarSaga 100W)
Save 34% Nov. 24–28, 2022!
This is the Jackery unit I bought. It has enough juice to do everything I need it to do and is small enough that it is easy to take anywhere I want to adventure. It fits well into the back of an ATV, or in the boat even, and handles my electrical needs with ease. The unit is a 2000W surge-wattage generator with 1000W running wattage, 2000W surge wattage and larger 1002Wh capacity. I have run small appliances off of it, and even ran my refrigerator for a while during a power outage. It has two foldable solar panels that charge the unit very quickly, and I have also charged it in the house off of an outlet, and in the truck. My daughter loves it because we can use it in the family van on road trips to keep her table charged up. This Jackery features three PURE SINE WAVE AC outlets, two USB-C and one Quick Charge 3.0 port that can charge all your appliances like a refrigerator and the all-important coffee maker. When I told my wife I was buying it, all I had to say was that it’d run the coffee pot for a long time if there was a power outage. In fact, last winter, we ran the coffee maker and the pellet stove off from it for a while and everything was fine.

Save 30% Nov. 24–28, 2022!
The Jackery Explorer 300 is the perfect, compact camping companion for someone who needs a small, portable power supply, without needing a ton of extra power. This unit has a 293Wh power capacity and can run small appliances and charge up to six devices like phones and tablets at once. Like other Jackery power products, it has ultra-simple operation with a single button to turn the unit on, and a digital readout to tell you exactly how much juice is left in the tank. It can be charged to 80-percent in under 2 hours from a wall outlet or being plugged into the car, and if you opt for a solar panel, it can be charged in 5.5 hours from a single panel. This is one of the most cost-effective power supplies you’re going to find anywhere.
Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station

This is the same power unit as the Solar Generator 1000 listed above, but without the solar panels for those that don’t need them, or maybe already have them. These 1000-watt units are extremely tough and portable. One of the main reasons I went with the Explorer 1000 is that I have to sleep with a CPAP due to a throat injury. I used to haul a gas generator with me when I went camping, but even though it was super quiet for a gas generator, it still made enough noise to make it hard to sleep at times. With Jackery, I no longer have to worry about that.
Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station
Save 30% Nov. 24–28, 2022!
When I was buying my truck, there were two models that were fairly close in features on the lot, and I went with the model with the bigger engine. The reason was simple—sometimes you just need more power. That’s where the Jackery Explorer 1500 fits in. It is similar in features to the 1000, but with a lot more power. This unit produces 1,800 watts and 1,534Wh capacity, so it will run even larger appliances such as electric stoves, electric microwave ovens, air-conditioners, and refrigerators, for a longer period of time. You can charge it in the car or out of a wall outlet. If you opt for solar panels, 4 of them will charge it from 0-80 percent in just 4 hours. It has a wide range of outlets and can run up to 7 appliances/devices at the same time. Like all Jackery portable power stations, this tough model is built tough, with a durable, molded-in carry handle and is made for years of use.
Jackery Solar Generator 1000 Pro (Explorer 1000 Pro + SolarSaga 80W/200W)
Save 10% Nov. 24–28, 2022!
While some Jackery models offer more power, the Solar Generator 1000 Pro is all about speed—as in recharging speed. It only takes 1.8 hours to get a full charge thanks to the four-piece SolarSaga 200W solar panels. This is three times faster than the Solar Generator 1000. You also get a full wall-outlet charge in 1.8 hours. Power discharge is amazing, too. If left alone, an 80-percent charge on the battery will last a full year, and with just one use per week, a full battery will last for 10 years, making this a perfect unit for someone looking for an off-grid power supply. The unit is basically similar to the Explorer 1000 in power output. It has a dual 100W PD design with two USB-C and two 100W PD ports, delivering steady power for essentials such as phones, iPads, laptops, drones and other devices. It also features multiple ports with three 1,000W AC output ports, two USB A and a DC car port. There is an advanced display screen, giving you detailed information about the power output and the status of the unit. When you add in the extreme long life of the unit as a whole with a battery that will withstand 1,000 complete charge cycles, this is a perfect cabin accessory.
More Jackery features to get jacked up about
All Jackery Portable power supply units have a built-in monitoring system that helps prevent accidents and keeps the unit lasting as long as possible. They all have a built-in flashlight at one end to help you navigate around camp in the dark, or to get things situated in case of a power outage after the sun goes down.
Jackery also backs every one of their portable power units with a three-year warranty. They have outstanding reviews from customers on Amazon and on their own website. And, to be fair, media guys like me all seem to be in love with every product from Jackery. I’ve read a lot of reviews from other writers and have yet to see one that is negative. In fact, that’s why I chose to buy one, myself.
